Lyrics

I have a few things to say
I’ll just say what I need to
I have a few years to go before I’m floating down the river again

So it appears I’m alive
Hey, it’s been quite a long time
I’ve spent a handful of years negotiating terms in hospital gowns
If you believe what you read
You’ll be dead before nightfall
That’s why I’m starting again without the pages in my head

Do you feel the same?
Caught beneath the weight of it all?

I am attempting to change
After years of destruction
Don’t be alarmed I’m still stupid, awkward, anxious, and a terrible bore
But I’m excited these days
It’s the strangest sensation
I only wish I were younger so I’d have more time to explore

Do you feel the same?
Do you understand?
All the pieces of this game are caught beneath the weight of it all
Caught beneath the weight of it all

I have a few things to say
I’ll just say what I need to
I have a few years to go before I’m floating down the river again

Do you feel the same?
Do you understand?
Every letter in your name is caught beneath the weight of it all
Caught beneath the weight of it all
Caught beneath the weight of it all
Of it all
All
All
All
